As a running back, Brown had nine carries for 27 yards, a three yards per carry average and scored two touchdowns.

Bearcats head coach Ed Pilcher called Brown a team leader who always gave his all.

“As a sophomore we tried Jamario at running back and he did very well,” the Bearcats head coach said. “Later he found a home at linebacker and really excelled.

“He always played all out and never complained. I am so proud for him. He was one of our best leaders and is just an outstanding young man.”
